If you are as unfamiliar as me, the story is of Rodriguez, a struggling, talented singer-song writer from Detroit who makes a couple of albums at the turn of the 1970s, having been signed by a label run by an ex-Motown boss. It sounds like the start of the American dream with comparisons to Bob Dylan abound but the records do nothing stateside and he is dropped and carries on living a hard, blue-collar life in construction, making ends meet for his family.

Every time I listen to Rodriguez I get the chills, he’s such an amazing songwriter. I’ve been listening to the soundtrack for the documentary all day. They have the album streaming up on the Huffington Post website. There’s also a really interesting article about the film. –> http://huff.to/OWSbC1
